Waiting on Wednesday - Miss Understanding: My Summer on the Shelf

I'm eagerly awaiting Miss Understanding: My Summer on the Shelf which will be published on 1 April 2010 by Hodder Children's Books. I loved the first book, Miss Understanding: My Year in Agony and I'm looking forward to the publishing house setting.

After a stint as the school agony aunt, Anya's forthcoming summer as an intern at a London publishing house comes as a breath of fresh air. It'll take her mind off Al - her AWOL boyfriend - at least, and maybe she'll get tips on how to be a writer, too. But it's clear that Anya's role is senior dogsbody - and involves reading terrible stories, listening to her colleague's Katie's domestic woes, and taking on a nightmarish teenage author, who is about five years late delivering his next 'best selling novel'. It's not quite the glitz and glamour Miss Understanding thought it would be, but it does have its plus points: Delicious Seth Hodges being one of them... Anya is torn between the suave Seth, the notorious waste of time The Boy, her lost boyfriend Al, not to mention the intriguing teenage writer Casper...So many boys, so little time. Another fresh, original and witty journey through Miss Understanding's life...

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
